GRIDiant Corp. will provide Burbank Water & Power (BWP) with GRIDview Asset Loading & Voltage Monitoring, a grid management software application for identifying and monitoring asset loads and voltages on the network for improved reliability and performance.
This project demonstrates BWP’s ongoing commitment to maintaining its system to the highest standards by incorporating new technologies and further maximizing its investment in AMI and other back-office systems.
By leveraging this data through advanced analytics, BWP will have better visibility of system and asset performance resulting in improved reliability of service to customers.
GRIDview Asset Loading & Voltage Monitoring features geospatial network visualization, powerflow and patented grid analytics, provided to BWP under license from GRIDiant. The application provides BWP engineers and executives new capabilities for visualizing and analyzing loading profiles from the substation to the distribution transformer, as well as monitoring voltage levels through the use of AMI data.
Further, GRIDiant’s team of advanced power engineers will use GRIDiant’s GRIDplan FCI application, to analyze BWP’s network to determine the optimal number and placement of Fault Circuit Indicators necessary to provide significant improvements in CAIDI and outage response times.
BWP is a community-owned utility serving over 50,000 customers and residents of Burbank with water and power since 1913.
